Many years ago the girls made these little turkey cups for each member of our family. They are from Family Fun magazine and you can find the directions here. They have them listed as Turkey Nut Holders, but we usually fill them with small candies, like Hershey's Kisses or candy corn.
As you can see, the originals had real feathers, but we used colored leaves. These are the same leaves the boys and I recently used for our Pinecone Turkeys. It's amazing how long a bag of fabric leaves can last. In our case, we've had this bag of leaves for close to ten years now.
Come to think of it, these would make great favors for a birthday party, especially if you were to paint the birds blue and glue on something to look like peacock feathers. Hmmm, something to keep in mind!
